Obviously not the whole show, or even what is listed in the "description".
Excellent "Black Peter".
"NOT FADE AWAY" is a 'treasure'. Early version of NFA with maracas and Pigpen playing harmonica, singing back-up. This is a "Must Have" for collectors of 1969 GRATEFUL DEAD shows.
Not your usual tom-tom dominated NFA, Garcia takes the solo instead of the drummers and lays down some smooth licks that gives NFA a whole new (old) dimension. The song does end abruptly for some reason.
"Good Lovin'" starts, but doesn't come back, after a really nice drum solo it goes off into THE OTHER ONE, CRYPTICAL ENVELOPEMENT, THE OTHER ONE then into CUMBERLAND BLUES and then the show ends.
Not the most sought after show there is, but surely one worth having for it's "roots" value of some of the most exciting songs the GRATEFUL DEAD would ever do.
Phil says "Good Night Folks, Merry Christmas" at the end of CUMBERLAND BLUES and after some applause, you can hear a woman from the audience say "thank you" and Jerry replies "Thank You!" then the tape ends.
Eat, Drink be Merry and Listen to the GRATEFUL DEAD.
Thanks for the love from the Fillmore Auditorium.
